Lewis Hamilton risks sanctions for wearing rainbow helmets in support of LGBTQ+ rights as Formula One chiefs say drivers shouldn’t use the sport to push their ‘personal agenda’ or make ‘political statements’

Lewis Hamilton and other Formula One drivers face potential punishments if they make ‘political, religious or personal statements’ at races next season. ‘But one thing we don’t want is to have the FIA as a platform for private personal agendas. Everybody has this and they are most welcome to go through the process of the FIA, to go through that.’. Ben Sulayem rejected the suggestion the FIA was shutting down drivers, saying he wanted to ‘improve and clean up’ the sport. ‘I have my own personal things, OK, but it doesn’t mean I will use the FIA to do it,’ he added.
